The UK Is Set To Go One-on-One With The Undertaker During WWE’s Huge Money In The Bank Week

The Undertaker is once again making the trip across the pond for a UK tour. Only this time, for WWE’s already massive Money In The Bank week, he’ll be taking to the stage rather than the squared circle.

The WWE Hall of Famer hung up his hat and trench coat in 2020, following an unparalleled 30 year career with WWE. Since then, the man also known as Mark Calaway has veered away from the ‘one more match’ routine so many former legends find themselves in and has instead taken to a very different solo pursuit.

‘Taker is now a one man sh….apologies, a ‘1 deadMan’ show, where he tours the major cities of America, often when WWE are in town for one of their Premium Live Events. And this summer, he’s embarking on a UK leg of his new adventure.

The four stop tour will begin on Saturday 1st July at Indigo at the O2 Arena in London. Money In The Bank will also take place at the O2 later that evening. The show will roll into Wolverhampton’s Civic Hall the following day, Manchester’s Albert Hall on 3rd July with the curtain closing night arriving on 4th July at the O2 Academy in Glasgow.

Money In The Bank Week Just Got Even Bigger

As mentioned above, the tour is tying in with WWE’s monumental Money In The Bank week in London. This will also see SmackDown emanate live from the UK for the first time in the show’s history. Ordinarily, a tape delay would be enforced so the show can air in its regular time slots in the US. However, this will not be the case on Friday 30th June.

The Undertaker’s 1 deadMan Shows take a look back at a career that, even three years removed from its finale, still somehow doesn’t feel real. Taking in multiple different eras, style shifts, gimmick changes, controversies, surgeries, opponents, successes and failures, Calaway navigated the wild world of professional wrestling multiple times over in a manner in which no one else has ever managed.

To begin life in WWE as a towering zombie who was seemingly impervious to pain, to evolve that character through Satanic cults, Limp Bizkit loving biker life and back to a teleporting, hallucination inducing undead giant is not a character arc to be taken lightly.

Yet Calaway not only managed to make it through with his credibility in tact, The Undertaker thrived in the process. He became perhaps the most well respected WWE superstar of all time. ‘Taker cemented his legacy as a locker room leader and an unmissable marquee attraction in the same vein as the iconic Andre The Giant.

The Next Act

Inducted into the WWE’s Hall of Fame last year during WrestleMania 38 weekend in his home state of Texas, ‘Taker’s speech that night was a further look into the man not many people saw much of during the course of the last three decades.

With The Deadman character firmly laid to Rest In Peace, Mark Calaway is lifting the lid on a remarkable ride through some of the maddest, most memorable in sports entertainment history.

This next act in Calaway’s time in the business may become the most interesting yet for The Undertaker. A legend of the game who shrouded himself in mystery for much of his career. Now he’s letting loose, telling stories and revealing the pain and suffering behind some of his most memorable moments.
